Light years away from the 70’s high rises and flashiness of Punta del Este, yet only about a quick half hour by car, is Posada del Faro. This place has laid-back charm written all over it. It’s like you get to go hang out at your friend’s posh beach house. While it may not be the most fancy or luxurious...

A great location - with fantastic views and beaches. But the Poasada del Faro seems like a hotel where the management have given up. We stayed in this hotels 5 years ago and have just returned. The rooms are now faded, the towels and linen old, the pool often dirty.. there seems to have been no maintenance since our last...

Nice small hotel where great attention to detail is given. 150 meters from beach, just walking down the small side street. Quiet. Good quality breakfast though small portions (eggs are an extra $5). The hotel has a very small pool but given the close by ocean this is sufficient for some laps and to have a drink by the pool...

Jse Ignacio is quite unique. Put the Hamptons in a mixer with Sylt in Germany (for those who know that spot) and Camps Bay in South Africa. Add 30 degrees air temperature and 23 degrees for the sea. Just perfect. The Posada is in walking distance to the sea. It is a restored old building, a quiet hotel with very...

This is an amazing place that is truly special. We had a wonderful time and the staff makes it that much more enjoyable! Santiago is a gracious host and made sure we were happy and satisfied at every turn. Thank you everyone at La Posada! We hope to return one day soon.

We had more attention from the dogs than the almost non existant staff.. Would have appreciated being told, especially as we came with 2 smallish children (this they knew upfront), that there was no food available at the hotel & that out of season (even though we were charged 300 USD per night) there is basically nothing available at all...

Given other reviews and articles about this hotel , and the cost of staying, we had high expectations and booked to stay for 7 nights as part of a 6 week journey around S.America. Unfortunately we found it to be only an average experience and, being so, hugely overpriced. To begin with, the front desk staff are willing enough but...

This little town is SO charming & wonderful - very relaxing. Beautiful beaches, and a few really fantastic restaurants; we loved NAM, la Huella, and Isla de Flores. A few lovely shops - a bit expensive but really beautiful things. What we loved about this posada, was the peace, the beautiful room, the little porch-deck with a view of the...

“The rooms on the right side of the hotel (Private) are the most spacious ones. Best rooms are on the top floor of this section. On the left side of the hotel there are excellent rooms as well. If you want to have straight view over the ocean, ask for rooms on the second floor facing the swimming pool. The Hotel staff are wonderful and will accommodate your request.”
